Behind the Scenes


It may not seem like it at the moment, but there's been plenty of crafty things happening behind the scenes at Curlypops HQ.


Like this super gorgeous camera bag commissioned by Carissa.

Pssssst: Check out that schmick twist lock closure!

Every time I make one of these bags, I'm sad to say goodbye.... and I keep telling myself that I really should make one for my own camera!

 
I'm completely in love with the fuschia colourway of this Lara Cameron print.   I decided to preserve and make a feature of the selvedge on the rear zip pocket (I hope you like that bit Carissa).

I'm thinking that we might need to start an Ink and Spindle petition to bring back fuschia!


Inside the bag, there are two removable velcroed padded inserts, and a couple of extra padded inserts so that the bag can also be used for other purposes. There's nothing like a bit of multitasking.

Now it's all safely packed up in a nice big box and ready to head off into the wild blue yonder. I hope you like it Carissa.

Gorgeous bag! Love that twist closure.

The bag is fabulous Ms Pops! And very Curly Pop sorts of colours there too. Surely there will be a reprint at some stage of that colour? I'm sure Carissa is going to love it and get a lot of use out of it. :)

Every time you make one of these bags I am chuffed that I started the ball rolling. I love my original (and prototype!) Curly Pops camera bag. It has changed my life and it is a very rare day when it doesn’t get used. Well done once again Cam, you are so clever!

Tracey said...

Love the bag - the colours are wonderful!! :)

Sally said...

Uber ACE!!!
Leaving the selvedge is inspired. Brilliant. Bravo!

Jennifer Rose said...

you really should make yourself one, they turn out wonderfully.
and there is a lot of fuchsia fabric around here, but not a lot of blue, which is what i was looking for the other day :/

I love this bag. Truly I do!
You have used the perfect bird print. And your sewing is smooth and straight. Mary Poppins would approve.

Caroline said...

Oh I especially love the selvedge feature. And the interior is so Curlypops. Beautiful sewing Cam.
